A married woman is suing Bauer Media after they allegedly used a photo of her beside a Tinder sex story.
The mother-of-six, from Melbourne, claimed the graphic online post was about a different woman being rushed to the hospital after suffering an injury during a raunchy night with a Tinder date.
Alongside the Woman’s Day Facebook post was a photo of the mother in a hospital gown laying on a bed.

She alleges Bauer Media never sought her permission to use the hospital photo or inform her of their intention to use the image alongside the unrelated post.
The mother claimed she was defamed and suffered depression and anxiety after her husband and family members saw her image beside the Tinder sex accident story.
The mother also alleged Bauer Media refused to publish an apology for using her photo, which she believes suggested she was promiscuous and unfaithful to her husband.

The defamation claim comes after the magazine publisher won a reduction in a defamation payout to Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson.
The Hollywood actress was initially awarded a record of $4.5 million from the media giant, however, the company successfully appealed the damages amount and reduced the payout to $600,000.
The Australian comedian is now taking her defamation case with the publisher to the High Court.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Bauer Media for comment.
